Yob announce Dave French as official drummer
Earlier this week Yob parted ways with longtime drummer, Travis Foster. Today the stoner/sludge metal band announced the permanent addition of touring drummer Dave French to the group. French has previously spent time in the Seattle, WA doom metal band Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth, however, since 2021 he has filled in as the touring drummer for Yob.
Yob shared the following statement via social media:
We're very happy to announce that Dave French is officially joining Yob as our new drummer.
We've been friends, neighbors, tour mates and admirers of Dave for over a decade. We first met in 2012 when he was playing drums for Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth.
His crushing approach and commitment to detail behind the kit was remarkable. Since then we've toured with Dave in multiple scenarios when he was working as a tech or sound engineer for bands like Neurosis, Voivod, Sleep (also Om, Boris, Soundgarden, MC50) over the years.
Dave has been playing drums with us live since 2021 and has brought his focus, energy and inspiration to every moment. We're thrilled to welcome him to Yob.
